Ernest Hemingway
Waldo Peirce
Ink on paper, 1928
National Portrait Gallery
Gift of Jonathan Peirce

Condition: Drawing had dramatic tears and surface stains.

Treatment: Non-image areas were dry-cleaned. Old repairs and adhesive residues were removed, and staining was reduced. Losses were filled, tears were mended, and minor inpainting was done. The drawing was humidified and flattened overall.
